Clearbrook's annual "day of fun" for their clients -- which include children and adults impacted by developmental/intellectual disabilities -- affectionately known as FunFest, took place on Friday, June 14, at the Clearbrook Commons. Activities included a petting zoo, games, karaoke, a reptile show, and everyone's favorite, a chance to soak Clearbrook President, Anthony Di Vittorio, in the dunk tank.

Clearbrook would like to thank our volunteer groups and sponsors, including the Clearbrook Guardians, Crystal Geyser Natural Alpine Spring Water, Dohn & Associates, the Karen Projahn Memorial Trust, Kemps, Jewel Osco, The Mendez Family McDonald's, and Walgreens.
